DO NOT bother booking with this place. My partner booked a long weekend away for us in December for my birthday in March, when we arrived we were told they were over booked and we would have to be moved to another hotel (The Galles hotel) which I can only describe as a cross between faulty towers and a peruvian...

The San Marco is a very clean hotel, the location is great and the service is also wonderful. But I would not stay again. The hotel is trap in the 40s with it decor. Now its a beautiful hotel but just not for me .

The San Marco Hotel is very cheap for a city like Rome and if you expect luxury, this is the wrong place. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed for our short stay. There are no tea- or coffee making facilities in the room, but you can get a kettle at the reception for a security deposit...

Again, after reading the reviews, I expected the worst and was pleasantly surprised. My room was modern and spacious with a large bathroom. There was plenty of open shelving, so since we stayed two nights, I was able to take all of my clothing out of my luggage and hang it or put it on the shelves and reorganize myself....

Apparently the hotel is constantly overbooking, maybe because they can get cheaper rooms on other hotels nearby (with the same amount of stars, although worst conditions...) and profit instantly without even having to wash sheets and towels... Anyway, as lots of other reviews, I didn't really get to try Hotel San Marco because I was transferred to another hotel... The...

We stayed in the Hotel San Marco for five nights and was about a 9-minute walk from the Rome Termini Train Station. I admit the walk to the hotel was a little disconcerting as it did not seem to be in a very nice area, though we were never really accosted. We found the hotel staff rather rude and disrespectful....

While the room and bathroom was neat big and spacious. There was no water in the room or tea /coffee making facilities. You can apparently hire a kettle for €30 euros. They have a bar down stairs. We were told tea and coffee was €1.50 each. One small bottle of water they charged us €4.50. Breakfast was included with our...

The hotel rooms are very warm, and pretty basic, with no tea/coffee facities. The location is handy for the railway station, and there are some excellent pizzerias etc. nearby. The lift is an ancient, slow 2 person job.

This was my third stay at the Hotel San Marco. The positives: Friendly staff that spoke English, The best breakfast buffet in Rome and the young man directing the breakfast room was friendly and efficient. Close to a metro stop--and close to Termini, very close to many great Restaurants. I had no issues with hot water in my room and...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
